The beauty is the beast.
Meet Nexess. She is a vampire and gang leader Antonio’s assassin and slave, whom he keeps in chains for everyone’s protection, and his pleasure, until he needs her to go out and kill for him.
And if she disobeys him, he locks her cold, hungry and alone in a cage to face her demons until she once again bows to his brute force and craves his touch.
Then she meets Jace, a vampire from the rival gang, another killer and, as her body tells her, one she has an irrepressible urge to devour, maybe in love, maybe in war.
It’s going to be a bloodbath. Then again, it already is.
I like the story even if I am not big on violence. Yes, this book has violence, and rape, and a bunch of stuff I'd never read. But there is something about Nexess that makes me want to read more. Maybe it's because Jessica has hit abusive relationship on the head! Maybe it's because I just want Nexess to be the kick ass vampire that she is and not a puppy- a kicked one at that.
Whatever the reason, I kept reading the book even with the elements that I dislike.
This book has sex in, apparently hungry and fed vampires are all horny. But I suppose if we all ran into Jace and he didn't eat us, we'd want it too.
I'd like to see what happens next. The little description made me curious.
I'd recommend this book for anyone that like erotic paranormal books. It isn't erotica- just erotic. Yes, there is a difference. If you've got a thing for mobsters, then you might like it too.
